It's been a week since I left Lagos, longer than a week since I last put up a post. I just needed to get away and find a place to be happy, rest, recoup and regroup before 2018. Boy, am I glad I did.
I understand if you don't forgive my absence, I know that I don't deserve you guys, I've just been so preoccupied with other things while also trying to find the joy I once had in blogging.
I would love to post a recap of my 2017 but all I can say really is, thank God that we don't look like what we've been through. It would be way too much to write. Thankfully December has been so much kinder, it's also been sooooo interesting.
It's been a year of letting go of some people but also making new friends, rebuilding old friendships, forming new partnerships and pushing harder in business.
Yesterday I met a blog reader for the first time, we'd planned to go and get food and run a few errands together. When she came to get me from my hotel I felt like I'd already known her long before. By the time she dropped me off she had asked a few questions, the last had to do with marriage, and when I answered for the thousandth time that I don't know, her conclusion about me was that I'm unserious. She said "Thelma do you have any idea how unserious you sound?"
I had never really looked at it that way, but I must confess, I did sound unserious. It's not because I am, it's just that this is Christmas and I've mentally checked 2017. Right now while I can, in these last few days of the year I'm just here for the good times, the laughs and food!
This post is just a sign of how unserious I'm being right now. Not sure if I made any sense but at least you know that I have not forgotten I have a blog.
Speaking of the blog, I honestly do wish I'd blogged anonymously. There's so much I can no longer share that I'm really dying to. I'm going to need to find a way around that.
Btw how are things at your end?
Do complete this sentence for me, please, I would really like to know.
